How they met-Michelle and Ben attended the same high school! Ben is a few years older, so they did not really know each other but definitely crossed paths. Four years ago, they connected at Groupon! They started out as good friends and about a year in started to date!
The proposal- Ben proposed at Michelle’s favorite candy store in Door County, WI. They were on their way to dinner with Michelle’s sister and brother-in-law and Ben said he wanted to say hi to his Grandpa, Aunt, and Cousin that were having ice cream at the candy store. When Michelle walked in everything seemed normal! Ben had everyone purchase candy, so Michelle was able to spin the wheel (if you spend at least $25 you get to spin the wheel). Once the wheel stopped, the girl handed Michelle a candy box, and when she opened it, Ben was down on one knee!
The wedding/reception-They tied the knot in Sarasota, Florida at the Ritz Carlton Beach Club, and then headed over to the main hotel for a nice formal dinner and dancing all night long. The reception was classic and elegant, with whites and pops of pink, and the natural outdoor landscape.
